Expert Video - Why is early detection of lung cancer important?
Lung cancer expert Dr. Abbie Begnaud of the University of Minnesota discusses why early detection of lung cancer is so important. She explains that if lung cancer can be found early – even when there are no symptoms – it's more likely to be cured with treatment. When diagnosed late, lung cancer can be hard to treat successfully. Finding lung cancer early can lead to better outcomes.
